In October 2014, Mathew and Jen Van Nostran purchased a dilapidated, 37-acre farm property right down the road from the sheep farm where Mathew grew up in Athens County, Ohio. They are renovating the new property and plan to put the land into pasture to expand his father’s sheep operation there and to instill in their two daughters values such as patience, confidence, and independence.
